AN ANDOVER pub is looking for people to fill a role the duties of which will include drinking beer and catching up with friends.

The Folly Hungry Horse pub, in Charlton Road, is advertising the job for pub goers and calling for a spokesperson to represent the pub company in return for a £500 salary.

As well as drinking on the job, the Pub-licist will also be faced with responsibilities that will include, attending entertainment events at their local pub, watching sports and playing the odd game of darts, pool or snooker.

As well as sampling the latest drink selection, the Pub-licist will also be required to make a number of visits to their local, in order to provide feedback and recommendations to help improve their pub.

Sarah-Jane Grace, general manager at the Folly, said: “Nothing beats the atmosphere and comradery of a local pub – and it really is the guests who make it such a great place to be.

“We’re searching for a pub fanatic who just loves a trip to their local, to become our first ever Pub-licist and help us to become the best pub the country.

"So, if you fancy taking part in a pub quiz, sipping on a cold beer or watching the big game – all while getting paid to do so, then we want to hear from you. We’d love it if the UK’s first ever Pub-licist was from Andover!”
